Acellular Dermal Matrix
A tailored piece of Acellular Dermal Matrix will be placed between the oral and nasal layers at the time of a Furlow Palatoplasty for repair of a Cleft Palate.
Device: Acellular Dermal Matrix
Other Name: DermaMatrix
Observational study composed of a prospective cohort group receiving ADM compared to a retrospective historical cohort group without ADM.
Objectives of the study:
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether ADM would lower the incidence of palatal fistula in patients undergoing primary cleft palate repair.
- Incidence of wound dehiscence
- Incidence of wound infection
- Hospital length of stay
